Chuck Todd About MTP: “I Don’t Know If I Want The Job”

Brother blog FishbowlDC live-blogged the Chuck Todd interview at the Q&A Cafe today at Nathans restaurant in D.C. Check out all the info there, but some highlights from the discussion:

• Do you want the “Meet the Press” job? “There’s no right answer to that question. … I don’t know if I want the job. Nobody’s talked to me about it. I looked up to Tim. It is the preeminent show but you’ve got to be a great interrogator … Who wants to be the idiot who follows in Tim’s shows. Not only that, but you have to follow in Tim’s shoes and now Tom [Brokaw]‘s shoes?”

• On NBC, post-Russert: “To me, it’s an excuse. I don’t want to excuse any issues going on and say, ‘If Tim was here, there wouldn’t be any problem.’ You can’t keep doing that. It’s like when you lose a loved one, there’s only so often you can use that as an excuse, come home late at night, ‘I blew through my curfew, Mom, I was getting drunk and didn’t care.’ You have to sober up and take responsibility for yourself.”

• No one at NBC has asked him to take his goatee off. “I’ve had somebody send me a shaving kit.”
